My first time with this show, so listening to this Dark Star, one observation is: man that Billy is one hell of a drummer. Tried the soundboard first, (and found the Stella doesn’t suffer the cut the recently added aud does.)
Appears pretty basic to me – they applaud at the beginning of Dark Star, they applaud at the end. Seems like it would be hard not to. But for the sake of argument – Stella had been played for six months at this point; granted not in SF. Maybe it was the anticipation of hearing this song for the first time, having either heard reports of, or been in attendance the previous evening.
Regardless of the applause factor, I extend my hearty thanks for one great listening session, and bringing me to contemplate the other stuff you mention in your post. And your sense of humor :)
